THE SELF-IMPOSED TYRANNY OF BLOGGING


This is exactly how I feel lately about blogging.

Maya, you damsel in distress, you--

You are a human whirlwind of a blogger but even whirlwinds need to rest awhile before they can resume their awesome gusting again...!

I know how you feel though (not that I produce a tenth of the words you do each week!)

Hope you are able to tear yourself away from your tyrant-captor and make some time for yourself!

In sympathy and empathy,

--Girish.

so do you feel like the gorilla or the damsel? Like Girish, I'll assume the latter and concur that breaks are needed. What you do here is appreciated, i'm sure you know that. we'll be here when you return after your breaks, no worries.

Holy King Kong! Michael, now I get the picture re your reluctance to be interviewed re the blogging experience. Isn't it suppossed to be fun––at least part of the time??

But I was wondering, like the damsel or the ape?

Maya said...

Am I the gorilla or the girl? The gorilla or the girl? The gorilla looks too happy and that screaming girl ... yup ... that looks just about right. Heh.

At least it's not a gorilla wearing a deep sea diver helmet. (Although I do like Elmer Bernstein's score to that film.)

Maya said...

Eh? Which film is that? (See ... the girl has stopped screaming and is now wondering where the gorilla is taking her.)

The film Peter is referring to is the incredible Robot monster. One of my Castro Theatre highlights last year was seeing it as part of the dual-projection 3-D series. Clicking this link will provide a visual.

Is it me or has the Bay Area film scene really picked up again in the past year or so? Maybe it's just a change of perception based on the fact that I'm following it even more closely. But I tend to think not.

Michael, I had a funny psychological (or maybe that's just psycho!) take on this photo: the gorilla is Freud's Id; the damsel is Jung's Anima.
